Potato Rosti with Blue Cheese and caramalized Pears

Potato Rosti-Blue Cheese-Caramalized Pears

Potato Rosti with Blue Cheese, Caramalized Pears. I have been reading about this event for a while now and since I am also a serious potato addict, it is about time that I send in an entry. I saw this lovely potato dish on Val’s site : More than burnt toast, and was inspired to get cooking. I do not have much of a recipe.
I made a simple potato rosti with just 2 big grated potatoes, salt and pepper and 1 egg. I sandwiched two rosti’s together with some Blue cheese and served it with a caramelized pear.
This event happens on every third Wednesday of every month and is the brainchild of Cathy of Noble Pig and Krysta over at Evil Chef Mom and is called Potato Ho-Down Wednesday.

  I made this same recipe as little finger bites the other night and it was gobbled up in no time! I hope you like it.

Ps. I forgot a crucial part of this post……Please forgive me. This idea is not my own at all. I saw it in a magazine and I went through every one of the magazine in my pile and could not find it anywhere. I only buy Sarie, Food and Homeand Fresh Living. If you by any chance see this in any of these magazines, let me know so that I can give credit where it is due.

    Mmm, rosti. I am absolutely addicted to them and *love* the presentation with blue cheese and pear. Inspired!

    That’s interesting (I’d never heard of rosti) and it looks like a really sexy way to dress up the humble potato. This looks great!

    I would have gobbled this up in no time as well Nina. Roesti (Rosti) are my favourite way with potatoes I think. Thanks for the mention. I’m glad to have inspired this creative dish. I have also mentioned you in a post about a South African dish Sosaties…still to be posted..so watch for it soon:D

    That looks so good! Pear and blue cheese is such a nice combo and combining them with some golden brown potatoes sounds great!

    Kevin – I was amazed that even my children liked this and they do not normally like blue cheese.
